Summary Piemule is about an ethnic group of Czechs who settled in the hills not far from Timisoara, Romania, over a hundred and fifty years ago. The ancestors of today's inhabitants, craftsmen and farmers, came with their families to the Romanian highlands around the year 1822 for work to earn their livelihood. The filming began in 1980 and proceeded for several years under difficult conditions. Jana Sevcikova captured the flow of life in one remote village through the changing seasons, religious ceremonies (Christmas, carnivals, Easter, weddings, harvests) and the plowing of the land
